The Benefits of 'Ryan' Double Glazing
Cooler in Summer
During summer in New Zealand the temperature can rise to anywhere between 20-30ºC. This is sometimes a little too hot to handle and the inside of our homes become ovens. To combat this Ryan Double Glazing can use specialty glass that aids in reducing solar heat gain and harsh UV rays, which get inside during the warmer months.
Warmer in Winter
Double glazing is commonly referred to as window insulation. The double glazed unit works as a barrier between the inside of your home and the cold winter air outside. Double glazing can halve the heat loss reduction in your home, meaning less energy consumption thus saving you money on heating bills.
Condensation or ‘crying windows’ are a common place in New Zealand homes. Condensation on windows can occur when the temperature of the glass is colder than the inside temperature of your home. This causes water vapour from the atmosphere to condense and settle on the surface of your window.
The installation of double glazing creates a dual glass window where the inside pane of glass is warmer than the outside pane. As a result, the formation of condensation can be substantially reduced.
Double glazing your home means noisy neighbours and high traffic areas will no longer be a barrier to peaceful living. Standard double glazing alone will help reduce the amount of noise coming through the glass in your windows. However, with the use of speciality glass such as Laminate this can be reduced even more.
Reduce UV light by reflecting the harsh rays off the double glazed unit
Reduced UV Radiation
Have you noticed your carpets have faded over the years? Maybe even your upholstery too? This could be due to the harsh rays known as Ultraviolet (UV) light. UV is a harmful light that not only speeds up the fading of furnishings but can have damaging effects on our skin and eyes too.
Double glazing helps reduce UV light getting in to your home by reflecting the harsh rays off of the double glazed unit.
Double glazed units are made up of two panes of glass with an air or Argon gas space in between. This creates an extra barrier between the inside and outside of your home, making it harder for your windows to break.
The use of toughened or laminated glass will help your windows stand even stronger against a misdirected cricket ball or an attempted break-in by undesirables.
Meet New Building Standards
Recent changes to the New Zealand Building Code now means all new homes must be built with double glazed windows. By upgrading to double glazing, you will be bringing your windows up to new building code standards without the need for builders.
Every Home is Different
When it comes to double glazing, one size does not fit all. Every family and their home have individual needs and outcomes they want to achieve.
